This was another good mystery by R. Barri Flowers taking place in beautiful Hawaii. There were quite a few twists and it kept my attention well.

She does a good job with character differentiation, so I always knew which character was speaking. I also liked the mention of Leila Kahana in the book as one of Eddie Naku's former lovers, since I just recently finished listening to one of the Leila Kahana Mysteries (also by R. Barri Flowers). I just thought it was kind of fun to see the crossover between the different series. All-in-all, a good mystery for those who like police mysteries, or those who want to take a virtual vacation to the island of Maui.

I always find the cultural references, language, and customs that Flowers includes for the native Hawaiians really interesting. I think his characters are really realistic and his story lines are always interesting. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by Jane Boyer. I REALLY like her voice. She has a deeper voice (or maybe that's just her character voice) than most of the female narrators I have listened to, and it is really easy on the ear. She doesn't have any of the high-pitched, whiny characters that are so typical with other narrators. Overall, if you like mystery, detective novels, or just want to escape to the Hawaiian islands, I highly recommend this book.
